Reviews - What do customers think about Elliptic Functions (Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften)?
A treatment of the classical theory of Elliptic Functions Oct 19, 2007
Let me start by saying that this book really is not worth the hefty price tag. I'm not sure why it's so expensive.
Elliptic Functions is a pretty cool subject. I got into this out of interest in elliptic curves and modular forms. However, the connection to those subjects is not very apparent in this book. Chandrasekharan's book seems to focus on the early development of this theory (I'd guess from the late-1800's to early 20th century). Focus is primarily on analytic foundations and connections to Analytic Number Theory.
No exercizes are included.
